're going to start with the big event in washington growing more desperate as the august 2nd deadline to raise the debt ceiling approaches. the key question will we see any progress this weekend. this as president obama warns that failure to take action could lead to serious financial fallout. >> we don't need a constitutional amendment to do our jobs. the constitution already tells us to do our jobs. we don't need more studies. we don't need more a balanced budget amendment. we simply need to make these tough choices and be willing to take on our bases. >> the republicans say they have a new long-term fix. a new amendment to the u.s. constitution. let's go straight to aaron mcpike. an issue of what is at stake today. a reporter with real clear pricks. what is this budget amendment? before we get to that, i want to show people what is at stake in terms of the numbers. $23 billion in social security payments. that's a payment that's on the united states' credit card bill. $87 billion that's another number that's being watched. august 15th also will come due $30 billion in interest paym

to other states and has been trying in a very big way of spreading the gospel of making it harder to vote all across the country. not just in kansas, but everywhere. earlier this week chris coback wrote urging politicians in other states to do what he and sam brownback have done in kansas, the case republicans broadly make for the urgent need for these new make it harder to vote laws is that voter fraud is wide spread across the country and a real threat. as evidence, there were 221 incidents of voter fraud reported in kansas between 1997 and 2010. seven of which yielded convictions. that's the evidence. 13 years, 7 convictions. convictions? detailed in a report from mr. coback's office in kansas. they consist of the following. one instance of electioneering, so campaigning too close to a polling place and six incidents of double voting, people voting in kansas or another state or two different counties in kansas. again, the seven convictions that are evidence to make voting harder is one case of electioneering and six cases of double voting. here's the thing, whether or not those seven c
it at scale, and that has been the big challenge. >> can you elaborate on that? what does that mean exactly? >> we would not exist if there was not a feeling that a lot of these communities do not have the experience online of finding the information that is most relevant to them. there are a lot of great weekly newspapers. there are a lot of bulletin boards, facebook woods, you name it. there is a lot of media focused at local, but not every community has it, and even the ones that do often are not getting the kind of service that i think they used to historical because of downsizing and regional newspapers not serving those communities the way they used to. so you will have the council meeting not really being covered. we have had numerous examples where board meetings, council meetings, things that those members got used to not being covered. suddenly, they were seeing the week after week and seeing that we were there to stay. >> in the audience, do you feel like you're communities are being covered well? do you know what is going on in your back yard? do you feel like your stories being

chart has given a lot over the years. we call it the big shot. in the last few years, change has happened in terms of the long-term stability, brief moments of disturbance, changes in 60 years of stability. we reinvented work practices and other practices. what has happened now is in the last 10 years, we are moving to a different kind of infrastructure proven by the digital loss of competition. now we find having a world in which we have constant disruption nearly every year. the challenge is how do you start to leverage that rather than fear that in terms of driving innovation in? it will not slow down for the next 30 or 40 years. let me say this personally. i can recapitulate the last 10 years of my life. it took me from this class to cloud computing come into graphic processing, that is scientific computing a fraction of the cost, now into a very limited form of competing. i have had to relearn almost everything i knew as a computer scientist. dealing with the plains regarding amazon and microsoft. i had to think about how to move these processing units. there are single proc

! why is he introducing it? >> i think the president is acting in good faith. i think he wants a big deal. i think he will take cuts that contracts won't want and take taxes. because his presidency and the future of the country -- he believes -- [everyone talking at once] >> socialistic. that what you're saying. >> vaguely socialistic, yes. >> when they came out with the report he said -- >> what is that report? >> that's a report that deals with the long-term deficit problems of this country. >> they recommend taxation, do they not. >> they had a whole series of recommendations, and the president said i will stand by what they did, except they're still waiting for him to stand by them. >> he's never taken it seriously, in not in his budget, not in his budget state, know when bowl simpson came city. not when they wanted a clean debt limit increase. so that he is winning a debate over the fiscal future of the country is astonishing! and. >> but he's keeping something else off page one! what is it? >> this is a genuine. >> the unemployment problem? it doesn't even figure in this. >> co
for that big deal, grand bargain, seem all but lost right now. now the hope is that congress can pass a dramatically scaled-back version before the country runs out of cash. taking his case public for the second time in a week, president obama accused republicans of failing to crops. >> the problem is members of congress are dug in ideologically into various positions because they boxed themselves in with previous statements. >> reporter: with the clock ticking towards what the president described as armageddon, the first financial default in american history, they hold out hope that a big deal could still be struck. >> but in order to do that we've got to get started now. that's why i'm expecting some answers from all the congressional leaders. and sometime in the next couple of days. >> reporter: for the first time, the president publicly said he's considering asking wealthier seniors in medicare to pay more out of pocket. today in his weekly address mr. obama suspended that stance. >> simply put, it will take a balanced approach, shared sacrifice, and a willingness to make unpopula
and his journalists. most of those calls are from democrats. murdoch is a big banger of republicans. if more momentum build into probes in the united states or even congressional hearings, there are cautionary tales for lawmakers. reports that the tabloids sometimes turn the tables on those who investigate them. most of those accounts date well to well before this scandal blew up in the media in recent weeks. the watchdog group tells us when british parliamentarians looks into the press a couple years ago he heard of allegations she were discouraged from repeatedly inviting rebekah brooks, one of the top execs, to testify. >> the allegation was, they were told, members of that select committee were told, do not invite her again. do not press this, do not push it, because if you do, you'll regret it, and that was made very clear to them. >> reporter: contacted by cnn, no comment on that allegation. are you concerned they might hit back at you and dig into your personal life or whatever? >> i'm not worried about my personal life nor am i worried about my next term. i've been here 27 y
